Donald Trump’s top spiritual adviser Paula White now regrets saying that God “lifted up” Trump in his 2016 election victory over Hillary Clinton.
Somewhere journalist and TV One’s News One Now anchorman Roland Martin is gloating as he should be because he’s the one who called out White’s BS in a massive take-down video that went viral (scroll down to see that video). As far as we’re concerned, it was that video that caused White to want to revisit her crazy, ignorant comments.
In case you missed the madness, White appeared on “The Jim Bakker Show” a few weeks ago where she said Trump’s victory in November was ‘akin to Esther becoming queen in the Hebrew Bible because both were unconventional choices for the roles they received,’ per The Washington Post.
“Because God says that he raises up and places all people in places of authority it is God who raises up a king. It is God that sets one down,” White said on the show.
But the megachurch pastor told reporters at the Religion News Association conference in Nashville Saturday that she was feeling “fired up” when she made such comments.
“Thanks for bringing up the elephant in the room,” White said.
“I’m a preacher, and I got a little fired up,” she said. “And I said some things invariably I wish I would not have said. Some things that could most definitely and have been taken out of context,” she added.
